USA Network gets into ‘The Moment’ with social platform ‘My Moment’

USA Network is launching a new social platform called “My Moment,” tied to the launch of its new reality series “The Moment.” While the TV show follows nine people as they get a second chance to pursue their dream career, the social campaign will help viewers follow through on their own dreams.

Users will declare their dream jobs, and put together steps to help them get closer to achieving that goal. They can share their progress along the way, while former Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner–who hosts the TV show–will help mentor some of the users. Participants can also win $1,000 to help them pursue their dreams.

“My Moment is a great way to involve viewers with the show on an even deeper level and allow them to effect meaningful change in their own lives,” said Alexandra Shapiro, executive VP of marketing & digital for USA Network in a statement. “By galvanizing USA’s powerful digital fan base, we hope to help viewers achieve lifetime goals.”
